    you can't always get what you want.

    Especially when "you" are the people of the United States.

    The decision has already been made. Obama only went to Congress because the Brits bowed out. He's made it clear he believes he has the authority to hit Syria regardless of what Congress decides.

    This is just political theater intended to help Obama shift the heat for this war onto the shoulders of Congress so he doesn't have to bear the responsibility if things go wrong. Which they will.
